I would like to know if it's easy to delete a bad reference from a profile.

Or do I need to report it?


If you have written a recommendation, you can delete it. But if you have accepted a recommendation, there is no option to delete it but you can hide it from your your profile.

From Help Center:

Hide or display a recommendation that you previously accepted

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Scroll to the Recommendations section and click Manage.
  3. Scroll to the recommendation you want to hide or display.
  4. Check the box to display it on your profile or uncheck the box to hide it.

If you hide a received recommendation, it will also be hidden from the profile of the person who gave it to you.

  • ok, so if I hide it, it won't be visible anymore (neither on my on his profile), so basically as if it has been deleted. Correct? – aneuryzm Feb 16 '16 at 8:28
  • No, it will not delete..it will be hidden from your profile and will be visible only to you. Anytime you can unhide it. – serenesat Feb 16 '16 at 9:16
